UTEP's Kidd Field is hosting the Region 10 UASTF Junior Olympics this week and weekend. Over 1300 kids are set to participate, ages 5-18, hoping for a trip to the Junior Olympics in Baltimore later this month. The meet started today, and runs through Sunday morning.
Team Bliss Head Coach Crispen Hanson loves that El Paso is hosting such a huge event. "It's a stepping stone for a lot of these kids. You have some national level competition here. Kids who've gone to Junior Nationals. People are going to start hearing their names in a couple of years doing things through the Olympics."
